It's officially fall, let the crafting begin! 'Tis the season of pretty trees, comfy flannel shirts, and, of course, crafting with friends! A few gals and I got together this weekend for a wreath-making bash, which, I must say, was surprisingly successful. (Oh yeah, it helps when one of your friends works at Joann Fabrics...and knows everything about everything in the craft world. SCORE!)
I went with some felt flowers, which were super easy to make, and added a few hints of faux berries. All of these rosettes were made from about 6 sheets of felt (I bought 12...just in case!). The bow was made with some scrap muslin that I tore into a long strip. All in all, this project cost a whopping $13 (thanks to all my Michael's coupons)!
-a hot-glue gun is a must for this project. Mine is the "high heat" mini gun from WalMart.
-use nice fabric scissors for cutting felt (makes detailed cutting SO much easier).
-be sure to bring champagne to share with friends, it lightens up the mood for all the OCD crafters...myself included in this category!
Cheers to craft season: may all your Pinterest DIY fantasies come true!
